Hello VK nation! It’s taken forever but the weather is finally turning around here in New York. And now is the perfect time to give a big shout out to Vogas Barcelona. We ran into Vogas at the Renegade Craft Fair a while back, and they were so generous as to hook us up with a pair of their dope espadrilles. Since it was November back then, we put these on ice. When it was right, we took them out for a spin. Click below for more photos.

Wills does it again! Pictured above is their new unisex Backpack. Made with pebble grain faux leather, this stylish bag looks right at home next to something from Matt and Nat. But we really dig the simplicity and versatility of this one more than any other faux leather bag we’ve seen . As with all Wills products, this is 100% vegan and ethically made in Portugal. It has a front organizer compartment and two interior compartments. We love that the inside is waterproof, in a dope contrast red color. If you’re toting around a laptop, they got you too – this bag fits up to 14″ machines.
Available at Wills for $122 (click on link to site for more pictures too)

Recently, TOMS was awarded the Compassionate Business Award by PETA. But you say, TOMS isn’t even a vegan company?! They sell a lot of leather shoes! That’s exactly what we were thinking. PETA says “companies like TOMS are stepping up with vegan shoes and accessories to keep you cruelty-free from head to toe.” We were a little skeptical so we hopped on over to TOMS site and we were pleasantly surprised by their expanded collection of animal-friendly products. Before, they only had a few colorways of their now ubiquitous espadrille. Now they have a few different lace up sneakers and even a flip flop.
While we are still waiting for the day this undoubtedly good intentioned company goes fully cruelty free, we are comfortable sharing their current men’s vegan selection as of spring 2016. Womens’ styles to come in a separate post. Note that we are not showing all available colorways. For that, go here.

Baseball season is approaching fast, and there is no better time than now for vegan athletes to gear up for the coming season. Don’t want to stick your hand in a leather glove? Don’t worry, Vegan kicks has an option for you: Carpenter Trade, makers of the one and only 100% vegan baseball glove on the market.
Each Carpenter Trade glove is custom-made to fit the specifications of the wearer and the measurements of his (or her) hand. They are lighter and stronger than traditional leather gloves, offering numerous performance advantages to those seeking an edge over the competition. Carpenter Trade gloves are now worn by many minor league players and can be seen in the Baseball Hall of Fame, after becoming the first synthetic glove used in a Major League game.
Scott Carpenter, the man behind the magical microfiber, was kind enough to take time to answer a few of our questions.
